The most obvious reason your legs aren’t strong is that you don’t squat.
Now, I understand some people have injuries that don’t allow them to squat, these people get a pass. But if you are healthy and free of injury, get your butt in the squat rack!
- AVOIDING THE SQUATS
- NOT SQUATTING WITH FULL RANG OF MOTION
- DOING LONG, SLOW CARDIO
- NOT PROGRESSIVELY OVERLOADING
When you impose stress on your body your body will adapt and change to better handle that stress in the future. So, if you go in to the gym and do 4 sets of 10 every week with the same weight your body will adapt to that stress. But the whole point of lifting is to continue progressing. That means that once your body adapts to 4 sets of 10 you have to change the stressor. This can be adding more reps, more sets, more weight, or cutting down rest periods.
